The Godfather (interactions with audio clips, masculine identity, capitalism) special edition S1 E7

This is a special edition of The Trace where I interact with audio from Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather”.  I look into the specific conditions that helped create Michael Corleone.  I get into questions of masculine identity in relation to mafia and capitalism and whether forgiveness and love are possible in environments where pride is the primary value.
